PopChar X 6.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Ergonis Software has released PopChar X 6.5 [1] with a new custom insertion technique, which should make it faster to insert characters in applications that don’t reliably support direct event-based insertion of characters. The update also provides a workaround for a problem that caused the search field to be cleared while entering search terms on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, squashes a bug on non-English systems that prevented PopChar from remembering the previously selected layout, and improves the speed of clipboard-based insertions for many applications. (€29.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members [2], free update, 3.7 MB, release notes [3])
